EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Pity the team that opens a half against the Seattle Seahawks.

Super Bowl XLVIII was a competitive fiasco on the first play from scrimmage, when an errant snap to Peyton Manning sailed into the Denver Broncos’ end zone for a safety.

It was a full-scale farce when Seahawks receiver Percy Harvin took the second-half kickoff and romped 87 yards for a touchdown, bloating Seattle’s already eye-popping lead to 29-0 when a busy Stephen Hauschka added the extra point.

Anyone who figured the No. 1 scoring offense powered by Manning, a five-time MVP, might get the upper hand on the NFL’s No. 1 scoring defense was drastically underestimating the ferocity of Seattle’s Legion of Boom.
